Stakeholders of AIESEC in India: Globalising Workforce and Being Truly Awesome
Reading Time: 2minutes
As AIESECers, one thing our youth oriented leadership body diligently engages in earning the trust of our stakeholders before engaging their support. With the distinct business model we run, a lot of our thoughts become things due to the dire support we receive from our clients to deliver a groundbreaking impact each year. Whether you call it reaching the unreachable stars or fighting an unbeatable foe, looking up to our clients for the same is what we do.
In order to truly commemorate the relationship we share with our stakeholders and to express our gratitude for the massive support we receive, AIESEC in India has been hosting its Annual Stakeholder Dinner every year. We engage our patrons through a gala convening and indulging into conversations while everyone takes a thought back home.
Who are our stakeholders? Our stakeholders come from various backgrounds. There are clients from NGOs to start ups to corporate companies. There are sponsors of the impact based events we do around the country and principals from universities who send their students for a power packed leadership experience. All help serve the purpose of delivering the cross-cultural exchanges we do by globalising their workforce.
Why Annual Stakeholder Dinner? What we essentially try to convey through our communication and have always actively tried to propagate is why youth activation is the need of the hour. We deliberate over our organisation which has a diverse set of young individuals from around the world making history, delivering exchanges and setting a benchmark of an impact that is impossible to achieve without the enablers.
Every company, every client that harnesses our opportunities is an enabler of impact, an enabler of leadership. And the idea we have all been delighted to celebrate is the proliferation of leadership in youth as we endorse the imagination of witnessing a world full of leaders and positive influence around us.
Who is attending the gala? This year, among our esteemed stakeholders, a few notable people who would be joining our celebration would be Ms. Dia Mirza, Mr. Ronnie Screwvala, Ms. Tanya Dubash, Mr. Mukund Rajan, Ms. Trisha Shetty, Mr. Atul Kasbekar, Mr. Afroz Shah and many others. Keynote speakers being Mr. Akshay Nambiar, the President of AIESEC India and Mr. Ishteyaque Amjad, VP Public Affairs & Communication, Coca-Cola India and South West Asia followed by a panel discussion and a networking space in the dinner.
As Anodea Judith smartly said “We are moving from a chain of command to a web of connection, from competition to collaboration, from markets to networks and stockholders to stakeholders, and greed to green.” We like to be the ambassadors of the same.
